"Spirit of a Zero fighter" - FD3S design video

I assume SOME people have seen this video but I KNOW the ones that haven't would probably like to. Awesome video with the FD's chief designer

enjoy

They don't talk about the design for very long, and the test runs they do aren't very "controlled" to me.

Very good video though. I downloaded it and am going to store it away.

yea I'll be honest and say that I didn't even get through the design "intro" before I wanted to come here and share. I continued watching the video only after this thread was already posted. ;-) None the less, the rest of the video is entertaining and it's in good quality with english subtitles...can't really ask for more.


And it's really getting me pumped for the summer when I study abroad in JAPAN!!! I'm so excited and can't wait to make my way around. I know NO Japanese (though I'll be taking some elementary Japanese classes) but figured a photo in my pocket of my FD is enough to communicate my passion for 7's.

Cheers guys


and Gordon, that Yamaguchi book is like a bible....so interesting, I recommend it to ALL 7 owner's.
